I'm participating in the NORD's Rare Movement Campaign!

At age 28, my sister was given less than 6 months to live when she was diagnosed with a rare, life-threatening heart and lung condition. Doctors told this mom of three young girls that she wouldn’t live to see her 30th birthday.

Because of NORD’s work in establishing the Orphan Drug Act in 1983 and because of their work in the early 1990s in supporting the first meeting of pulmonary hypertension patients, my sister is alive and on one of 14 therapies for this rare disease.

Join me in thanking NORD for saving Alex’s life!

This February, I am joining NORD’s Rare Movement Campaign to raise awareness for rare diseases. Together, participants aim to move a total of 7,000 miles of donor-supported movement by Rare Disease Day on February 28th. There are 7,000 known rare diseases, 95% of them have no treatment.

Help NORD continue to support the 30 million Americans affected by rare diseases through patient assistance and support programs, research grants, advocacy and educational initiatives.
